I was out the last couple days looking for an outsized blackie bruin. I took the Sitka Ascent Pant, Core Zip T and Traverse Tip T with me.
The Ascent Pant performed up to my expectations. I was fast drying, reasonably warm for a light pant, and did a reasonable job blocking wind. No holes, snags, or adverse wear from breaking through deadfalls, devil's club, and alder thickets.
The Core Zip T did it's job as a top base layer. It was reasonably warm when hiking alpine areas. It also dried VERY fast then on the body.
The Traverse Tip T was ok. It was somewhat warm when out of the wind, but I was not impressed with its ability to block wind. It did dry relatively fast. Over all I can think of some better base layers. My Mountain Hardware Microchill or Sporthill Summit are better mid layer tops.
